So many things wrong with our medical system. Clearly the hospitals haven't gotten the memo about palliative care. And/or, they still enjoy charging $20 for bandaids and water cups.

Some say we are more compassionate and reward Illegals with billions in free health care thus making Medicare way more expensive for LA.

Most say we are the most politically ignorant LOSERs in America.

You decide.

$112,000 per patient in Los Angeles as of 2010, about 60% higher than the national average
